  1. Ask yourself, how long has it been since I seen a CPD car cruise down my block...? Well manpower is down, maybe you'll see 1 every 8hrs.

  2. The reason 16th district has so little crime is because it's so far away from the south and west side of Chicago -too much trouble for thugs from these areas to drive up to Jefferson Park district. Wickerpark and Ukrainian Village is just a stroll away, they can be there and back several times by dinner time.

  3. Almost a thousand more burglaries ,robberies, and such for our area. A thousand more crimes, and at least how many less cops, 50? Can you please find this out?

  4. If you actually knew how few cops are in your district, you will freak out. Keep paying high taxes while all the resources you pay for are south and west sides.
